Calling all Slow Cooker Recipes!

So the Christmas season gets a little crazy and afterwards it takes some time for catching up. This is why I am calling for all easy Slow Cooker/Crock Pot recipes. And don't forget they have to be yummy!. I think Crock Pots/Slow Cookers are the best. It is so convenient to get your meal prepared and ready in the morning before the hectic day begins. The best is coming home to a nice fresh warm meal. So I will share with you my favorite recipe for the Slow Cooker if you share yours. I figured this could be very beneficial for us all during the season. If you prefer to email it to me please do and I will post it up for you. I would also appreciate any good appetizers, desserts, or other great recipes. As long as it's edible! Thanks!

Garlic and Brown Sugar Chicken

1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup Sprite or 7-Up soda or Orange Juice
2-3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon pepper (regular black or cayenne)

Place chicken in crock pot.
Mix all remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.
Cook on low for 5-7 hours. (depending on how hot your pot gets)
Serve over rice or noodles.
You can thicken the juices after cooking with a little cornstarch.
The chicken just falls apart and it is so good!

Easy Barbequed Pulled Pork.

1 pork roast to feed your family (the size isn't important) Boneless works best, but you can use bone in too.
apple cider
Barbeque sause (your favorite brand)
Garlic (I use either garlic salt & coarse pepper, or garlic pepper & kosher salt)

Season your roast with the garlic, salt & pepper and place it into your crock pot. pour in about an inch of apple cider. Set the crock pot according to the manufacturers directions for the time.

Once the roast is cooked through, remove it from the crockpot and using forks pull the meat appart. Reserve the apple cider/meat drippings. You can remove all the fat and bones (if necessary) now. Once the meat is pulled, add it back to the crockpot and add in the barbeque sauce with a bit of the apple/drippings (careful as the drippings also have a lot of the seasoning in might want to make sure they don't end up back in your sauce.) Let the meat & sauce heat through.

You can serve this on rolls or buns, or directly on the plate.

So I don't have a full recipe, but I love to just throw the bags of frozen chicken breasts (I buy mine at Wal-mart) with some water in the crock pot.Then you have shredded chicken, that is usually enough for two meals and you don't have to sit and cut it all up, because it just falls apart! :) I actually have some in the crock pot today!

I just put chicken in with couple cans of cream of chicken and 1 can of water more or less depending on if you like it thicker. Cut up potatoes and carrots with onions if you like them and couple cloves of garlic some salt and pepper and you have super moist and yummy meal.

This super easy recipe turns out perfect every time I make it-and the leftovers are even yummier then the original dinner! If you wish to add veggies to your roast, add them at the start of the cook time. For a healthier alternative, use low sodium broth and low fat cream of mushroom soup and be sure to trim visible fat from your roast.
* 3 pounds rump roast
* 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
* 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed beef broth
1. Place rump roast in a slow cooker. Pour in condensed cream of mushroom soup and condensed beef broth. Cook on LOW for about 8 hours.
